ARE YOU SERIOUS?
Your ignorance scares me more than the gang bangers do. How do you justify making such an ignorant comment as, ".....they only kill each other? I'm not afraid of them because I don't belong to a gang."
Let me give you a little piece of advice, you should be afraid. Now let me tell you why. BULLETS DO NOT HAVE NAMES ON THEM! There are countless victims out there who aren't or weren't in gangs who were injured or killed by a gang members bullet. I'll give you two (2) examples of the hundreds of incidences that I could.
Example one (1)- The "Summer of Violence" 1993. Broderick Bell, the young boy who was shot in the head while sitting in the backseat of his mother's parked vehicle on a neighborhood street when two (2) cars of rival gang members exchanged gunfire while driving down the street.
Example two (2)- The young mother who was shot in the head, in front of her young daughter, while watching T.V. on her sofa in her living room, through her picture window during the day by gang members doing a drive-by on a rival gang members house. Guess what?! They shot up the wrong house.
Next time, think before you speak.
Nice 2 examples of accidental hits

Christine G. is a lunatic. I just wanted to go on record with that. As for Commerce City. It IS the armpit of Colorado. I think that slogan adorns some of the signs when you enter the city limits so that you can be sure and roll up your windows as you drive through. I worry about growing a third ear and a tail because I drive through that dump of a town on I270 twice a day and breathe those fumes coming from the refineries and landfill. The so-called citizens of that hell hole should have changed the name when they had the chance so that the new richies on the outskirts could begin bulldozing and renovating the shite-hole section of the armpit. The cockroaches make up one third of the population by the way. Oh, and one more thing. I hope they barbeque those Mexican bastards and every other gang banger in that sphincter of a town.

For every Mexican they arrest they should deport 5 others as a preventative measure.

To see mexican on mexican violence, perhaps if we just let them continue, they will kill each other off and we won't have to worry about deporting the illegals.

Um, Commerce Shity is a hell hole! Always has been, always will be. How sad for you to live there. I bet that those Mexicans ran out of Beans, and that is the only reason they turned themselves in... Poor bangers was starvin'.
Maybe you have a can of refried beans you can take to the jail and feed them??? It's the least that you could do knowing that Commerce Shity is such a nice place to live.
Smells like Crap, oil and the bangers are movin' on up! I'm glad your dirty little scum town harbors all the dirt. You enjoy...
One thing about this is that, the two men who did the shooting did turn themselfs in, I don't see this in denver or other citys in denver? We all live here in Colorado and there are good and bad in everywhere we lie our heads. If you live in parker or boulder who cares! Things happen there too.

Glad the jerkoffs turned themselves in. Less worry for the "cops" that would be looking for them - NOT! Anyway, hope Karma takes care of them and their ilk before too long.

Remember folks, God is going to burn the earth, not flood it again. Hmmm, seems like that's happening too, slowly. PTL.

"Your ignorance and general stupidity has just royally pissed me off... You dumb **** Where do you live and what do you know about gangs and their activity?

You are a stupid republican that lives a life scared. What a fool you are that should NOT be posting such STUPID comments unless you know what city life is all about.

Off with your fingers!

Wait, there is a terrorist coming to your house soon... Better tell George Bush!

Then, maybe your son or daughter can be sent to Iraq and be murdered!

We need to start a branding program that brands all illegals with a hot iron prior to deportation. Then, if we catch them here again, feed them to lions. Soon the problem will resolve itself.

Please, let me clarify a couple of things for you.
Your comment, "then they probably will never get caught" is a moot point, as the article clearly stated that the "two suspects turned themselves in".
As for your question, "Wonder if they were illegal?", I'll answer that for you. NO! None of the people, the victim or the suspects, involoved in this tragedy are "Illegal". They are all born and raised U.S. citizens.
How do you know? However, at least someone felt bad for killing someone else, but then again, if they had any respect for human life they would'nt have killed anyone no matter who they are.

I know because I live in Commerce City. The young man who was killed was the cousin of a good friend of mine. The two (2) suspects mother lives in my neighborhood.

You obviously know nothing about my town, seeing as how you only drive PAST it on I-270. Have you ever driven in TO my town? We have a lot of wonderful places and people here.

The refineries and other businesses are the base of our town, hence the name "Commerce". Commerce being defined as BUSINESS. I doubt the people of Commerce, CA feel the need to change the name of their town, as we felt it wasn't necessary to change the name of ours.

By the way, how can you smell the landfill from I-270? The landfill is located at 96th & Tower Road. I live in the "core" city and I can't even smell it and when I drive out to Reunion I can't smell it from there either. Next time think before you make an IGNORANT comment.

You say I'm a lunatic, maybe so, but atleast I'm NOT stupid. See there is medication for lunacy, however there is no cure for STUPID!
